my gifts. so i'm a little miffed with the barack obama white house. >> it might be under your pillow, under the christmas tree. >> i have a feeling chris christie might have gotten gifts before i did. i would think if you're trying to market a product, the product being the republican party, probably not a good idea to insult the following demographics you'd like to one day pursue, latinos, african-americans, young people. mitt romney has insulted everyone that the republican party operatives now want to win over. so i think the gift he might want to give his party is the gift of silence. >> let's talk about the rank stupidity of romney and the candidate himself. how did he not know that others would be getting these tapes? this was at a big fund-raiser where he got betrayed in effect by videotape once before. at this point those donors have nothing before in letting ashley and others be involved. >> when your staff sent me ashley's articles, i hadn't seen the remarks yet. when i read them, it made me really angry. it made me feel like this guy who lost and has already had his time i
attack the harder it is to understand why the obama white house consistently pushed forward this idea that the demonstration was really responsible, and it was spontaneous and linked to this anti-islam video when that initial reporting clearly pointed to al qaeda and this group called ansar al-sharia. megyn: we have been talking how they went even farther and jay carney told us there was no evidence that this was preplanned. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you k
and combative president obama who strode to the white house lecturn today for his first press conference since winning his second term. at the top of his agenda, a first step towards saving the country's economy were dropping off the so-called fiscal cliff which one of our guest tonight more aptly calls the austerity bomb. >> pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep the middle class taxes low. >> eliot: the president also emphasized what he would not do a sending time to make a tax deal with house republicans. >> obama: what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> eliot: mr. obama also waded into the scandal that saw general david petraeus step down as director of the c.i.a. he offered assurances that damage from petraeus' affair was at least so far con
on this administration. >> obama: she made the appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> now where in there did he say "pick on" pop those were their words. >> stephanie: exactly. and by the way you know who is back to the administration is paul wolwitz. what everybody has said. there were fast-moving events from the middle east. they said this was the intelligence they had at the time. this is lindsay graham yesterday. >> this is about the role she played about four dead americans when it seems to me that the story coming out of the administration, and she's the point person is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. the reason why i don't trust her is b
: president obama walked into the east room of the white house for his first postelection news conference, tackling the major issues his administration will face in the weeks ahead. >> i'm open to compromise. and i'm open to new ideas. >> reporter: the president meets with congressional leaders tomorrow. both sides are expected to stake out their positions on the looming fiscal cliff, which would see automatic tax increases and budget cuts go into effect if there's no budget deal by year end. while both sides talk about compromise, president obama says any deal must not extend tax cuts for the wealthy. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to $1 trillion. >> reporter: but house speaker john boehner made it clear, wealthiest americans should not see their taxes go up. >> i have outlined a framework how both parties can work together to avert the fiscal cliff without raising tax rates. >> reporter: for the first time, the president weighed in on the scandal that led to general petraeus' res
as it goes into effect over the next year. with obama safely in the white house for another term, house republicans say they will no longer try to repeal the affordable care act. but they are putting some intense scrutiny on how those changes are taking place. the house ways and means committee is now issuing a subpoena for health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. they're demanding to know how the agency is using taxpayer money to pay for p.r. and advertising campaigns. health and human services has signed at least two contracts. one of those worth $20 million. the house ways committee says americans deserve to know where their money is going. meanwhile, employer health insurance premiums just saw their lowest increase in the last 15 years. at the beginning of the decade, premiums were going up by 10% to 15% but this year, the increase was just 4%. now the bad news, this does not necessarily mean lower cost for you. employers know when the healthcare reform goes into full effect in 2014, they will have t
, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. mostly a waste of time. as mr. obama did what he always does, provided long-winded answers to general questions. the first question from the white house press corps should have been very simple. exactly when were you told about general petraeus, mr. president? and why was this kept secret until after the election? simple. that's the kind of question s no wiggle room. instead, an associated press guy asked an opinion question rather than a fact question. allowing the president to dance. >> do you think that you, as commander and chief, and the american people should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and, you know, i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i have said before, general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he se
